WATCH: Media Won’t Stop Talking About the Moment UN Leaders Laughed at Trump. Nikki Haley Explains What Really Happened.

Published

on

If you’ve read any media coverage at all about Trump’s speech at the UN earlier this week, no doubt it included the beaming report that when Trump toted the accomplishments of his administration, the audience laughed.

As you can imagine, the moment Trump said that, in very Trumpian style, “In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country,” and laughter could be heard from the audience, the media set to work making sure that was the major takeaway from his speech.

This may shock you, so prepare yourself: the thing is, the media hates Trump.

I know, I know, you never would have guessed it after two years of glowing coverage of every little thing he ever says or does, right?

Yeah, right. The media hate Trump and if he donated a million dollars to a hospital that treated children with terminal illnesses, they’d find some way to cast the move in a negative light.

But did Trump really drop this brag about his accomplishments, to the stunned laughter of mocking UN delegates?

Not quite.

As Western Journal explains, it wasn’t quite so dramatic:

Shortly into his remarks, Trump said, “In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country.”

Laughter could be heard in the audience, prompting the president to say, “Didn’t expect that reaction, but that’s OK,” which drew laughter and applause from the U.N. crowd.

Nikki Haley, Trump’s bulldog ambassador to the UN, appeared on Fox and Friends Wednesday where she was asked about the laughter and explained that, predictably, it was far from what the media would lead us to believe.

Ainsley Earhardt, host of Fox News’ “Fox & Friends,” asked Haley about the moment during Wednesday’s show.

“I know you were in the room when the laugh happened,” Earhardt said. “Sometimes the media can portray it as one thing and it’s not that at all. What was it like and why that reaction?”

“The media’s got this so wrong,” Haley responded. “I deal with these leaders every single day. I know exactly how they think.”

The ambassador explained the world leaders at the U.N. do not love America, but they respect the U.S. since Trump has become president.

“When he said that, they love how honest he is,” Haley said. “It’s not diplomatic and they find it funny. I mean, when he goes and he is very truthful, they kind of were taken back by it. …

“All day yesterday, they were falling over themselves to get a picture with him, to talk about how great his speech was, how strong it was. Whether he said good things about them or not, they love that he’s honest with them, and they’ve never seen anything like it, and so there’s a respect there.”

The ambassador further observed, “I saw that the media was trying to make it something disrespectful. That’s not what it was — they love to be with him.”

Trump is a pretty funny guy, and whether you love him or hate him, it’s not uncommon to laugh at his verbiage. The thing is, while it might be a little funny at times, his accomplishments are real. It is a completely unprecedented act to have accomplished so many of his campaign promises in such a short time.

Trump is the kind of guy who is determined to do whatever he sets his mind to, and while he’s had both successes and failures along the way, what he said on the floor of the UN wasn’t that ridiculous of a statement.

World leaders know what a powerful head-of-state looks like.

VIDEO: Mike Rowe Delivers Summary Of Democratic Candidates’ Economic Agenda

Published

on

Mike Rowe, America’s favorite champion of the average, blue collar worker, is on a promotional tour for his new book, “The Way I Heard It,” and stopped by “Fox & Friends,” where he gave a summary of the economic agenda currently being pushed by the Democratic candidates running for president. Here’s what he had to say, via The Daily Wire: “When you have a half a million Americans sleeping out on the street today…and then you also have three people owning more wealth than the bottom half of American society, that is a moral and economic outrage,” said Sanders. “So if you are asking me, do I think we should demand that the wealthy start paying — the wealthiest top one-tenth of one percent — start paying their fair share of taxes…Yes, that’s exactly what I believe.” The hosts then played a clip of frontrunner Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who is also running on an aggressive tax-the-rich plan. “Taxing income is not going to get you where you want to be the way taxing wealth does,” she said. “We need a wealth tax in order to make investments in the next generation.” Asked about his response to the Democrats’ various economic plans, particularly Sanders’ 97.5% tax on the 400 wealthiest Americans, Rowe said, “Yeah, okay. It’s a free country. Float ‘em. Fly ‘em. Run ‘em up the old flagpole — see who salutes.” He then offered a memorable summary of his takeaway from Tuesday’s debate. “Look, in the end you’ve got millionaires arguing with millionaires over who hates the millionaires the most,” said Rowe. Rowe went on to say, “And I guess it’s a conversation we’ll have, but I remember a couple of years ago, I took my meager staff over the Reagan Ranch … One of the stories they…

‘The View’ Co-Host Joy Behar Argues Politics With Stranger While On Vacation; Says Trump Is ‘Destroying The Planet’

Published

Joy Behar, co-host of “The View” so despises President Trump that she cannot seem to allow herself, or the rest of the human race, a break from constantly bashing and slamming the man, even while she’s supposedly taking a vacation. Behar, who recently took a trip to London, ended up getting into an argument over politics with a complete stranger, claiming Trump is “destroying the planet.” Via The Washington Times: “When I was in London, I was in the war rooms and I got into an argument with a Trump supporter,” she said, NewsBusters reported. “All he said to me is, ‘Why can’t you give him a chance the way we gave Obama a chance?’” Ms. Behar scoffed at the idea. “Give him a chance? He’s destroying the planet!” she said. “He’s destroying the democracy. He doesn’t know what he’s doing. He’s writing stupid letters to Erdogan. He’s killing people far away from us who did nothing but help us. Give him a chance? That’s the argument you’re giving me underground?” Getting into an argument with a stranger wasn’t the only excitement for Behar on her trip. She was apparently pickpocketed as well. “I got robbed at Harrods,” Behar recounted. “They stole my wallet. I was pickpocketed, yes.”
